if you are one of those people who are “not artistic"?

ever said or thought “I'm not creative.”? I "can't"
write, paint, draw...
people have the mistaken belief they are not gifted, talented or
creative, but this is simply just not true!
dictionary definition of creative is “relating to or involving the
use of the imagination or original ideas to create something.”
Seth Godin said - “We're all
born creative, it takes a little while to become afraid.”
Maybe you "used to be
creative" but feel you have lost your creativity? Perhaps
misplaced it in the mists of time, obscured by adulthood, wrapped in
fear? Or are afraid to be creative because your skills "don't
measure up." We are often so afraid of being judged as “not
good enough” that we don't even bother to try any more. Or perhaps
you think have outgrown creativity or are "just too old"?
good news is we all have the capacity to be creative and to express
that creativity in our own unique way. Whether it is through
conventional channels like art, music, and writing, or less
traditionally accepted means like conversation, ideas, innovations or
inventions, food, business, drama, dance, or any other form,
the opportunities for creativity and the self-expression of that
creativity are endless.
hardest thing about being creative is often just getting started.
Overcoming the inertia, the fear of the blank page or canvas or just
knowing where to start. Sometimes the best way is to (in the words of
Nike) "Just Do It!"
